environmental reviews. another project that is just getting under way in the eighth district is the twin metals project which has also produced thousands of minnesota jobs for both construction and long-term operations. a 2009 study, the university of minnesota-duluth found that more than 12,000 minnesota construction jobs will be created in minnesota if all strategic metal mining projects currently under study moved forward. in 2009 the study also estimated that more than 5,000 direct long-term minnesota mining jobs would be created when all strategic metal mining projects currently under study become operational. minnesota needs these jobs and country needs the minerals that these mines produce. and everyone needs a definitive permitting timeline that is reliable. unfortunately this is not a unique project. seven years and $40 million is not even the worst example of inefficient permitting. many other mining projects have been stalled for even longer due to inefficient and at times ajend -- agenda-driven permitting process. another example is a mine in montana. it has been in the permitting p
